Artaud by Gérard Mordillat( Visual )

3 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antonin Artaud (1896-1948) remains one of the most influential figures in 20th century art, theatre, and cinema. His influence is evident in the works of such theatre luminaries as Jean Genet and Peter Brook, and extends into the world of rock 'n' roll through artists like Jim Morrison and Patti Smith. This amazing collection sheds light on the enigmatic genius who penned some of theatre's most sacred texts, in addition to starring in early classics of world cinema. En Compagnie d'Antonin Artaud is a drama based on the diaries of Jacques Prevel, a poet who befriended Artaud in 1946 when he was released from an insane asylum. In La Véritable histoire d'Artaud le Mômo, Artaud's friends and colleagues provide moving and extraordinary eyewitness testimony to his final years. The bonus short, Jacques Prevel, de colère et de haine, is a documentary portrait of the poet Jacques Prevel, a very close disciple of Artaud, based on the accounts of those close to him

L'origine du christianisme = Origin of Christianity( Visual )

4 editions published in 2004 in French and English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmmaker-scholars Gérard Mordillat and Jérôme Prieur spent over three years assembling and interviewing 23 of the world's most astute historians, archaeologists, and writers on religion to probe the origins, the emergence of Christianity. In their investigation, they demonstrate how the death and crucifixion of Jesus by the Romans set into motion an irreversible division of Jews and Christians. Three and a half centuries later, Christianity became the official religion of the Empire. How did a story that began in Israel, in Judaism, in Jerusalem, give birth to a separate, worldwide religion that claims millions of believers? These scholars also address explosive issues in the Christian world, including: Did Jesus found the Church? Is Jesus God? Did Jesus have siblings? What is the relationship between Judaism and Christianity? And who was the Apostle Paul, and was he the true founder of the Church?
